Point Guard Terry Rozier

Over the course of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, the Boston Celtics were arguably the biggest surprise. Not only had they lost Gordon Hayward, but starting point guard Kyrie Irving was gone for the remainder of the year as well. Most folks were ready to write them off as a quick exit.

Backup point guard Terry Rozier had other plans. During those playoffs, Rozier led his Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals as he averaged 16.5 points, 5.7 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game. Rozier had some big games and big moments along the way, and set himself up for what he thought would be a bigger pay day in the future.

He may be restricted, but I think the Celtics will have some competition in teams willing to overpay. One of those teams has long been rumored to be the Bulls.

While he certainly provided some big moments last year, Rozier’s overall production is actually somewhat underwhelming. During the 2017-2018 regular season, Rozier only shot 39.5 percent from the field. Here is the kicker: That still holds as his career high for a regular season. This past year, his efficiency declined to 38.7 percent from the floor.

Rozier isn’t all that some have him made out to be, I can assure you that. With the Bulls likely looking for a different kind of veteran to come in and work alongside Coby White, I don’t see Rozier being the guy. In fact, I hope he isn’t.
